Former Vice President Dick Cheney is scheduled to headline the Claremont Institute’s 30th Anniversary Dinner next month here in Los Angeles. We at GayPatriot expect to be organizing a table, but we fear, given what we’ve read about the hatred of right-wingers harbor for homosexuals that this conservative think tank might cancel his appearance.
You see, now that in addition to opposing the Federal Marriage Amendment (back in 2004), welcoming his lesbian daughter’s same-sex partner into his family (and at public events), he now favors repeal of the ban on gays serving openly in the military. Surely, conservatives, if left-wing stereotypes be accurate, will throw him under the bus.
They will no longer sing his praises when he criticizes the Administration on the Sunday morning talk shows. They will no longer consider him a hero. All past praise of this good man will be pushed down the memory hole.
They’ve been waiting for this moment for six years, these right-wing haters.
But, we, at GayPatriot, will continue to stand by this principled conservative, even if our ideological confrères on the right abandon him for his “homosexualist” agenda.
